Ageless

 

Ageless

I hold a voice
sometimes feel it slip
between my fingers

grasp a little tighter
not so tight as to startle it
or send it fleeting
just enough to let it know

I remember, understand
its time is not
limited to my past

its confusion a sign
I have more to learn

its wonder reminding me
to be open to possibilities

that even decay
and loss can lead to growth

I hold that voice to my ear
remembering
beginnings never really end


Inspired by Jeff Schwaner’s Saproxylic.
